Anastomosis creates interconnected water flow based downcutting, ranging from small pits to large river channels. It can be used for roughening up a surface without losing the features of that terrain, and for deepening existing flow structures.

Before and after Anastomosis.

Using high Impact and Influence values in Destructive mode.

Using a high Impact value in Rivers mode.

Node Properties

ImpactThe intensity of the process. Higher values create stronger physical impacts within the erosion process.
Impact AreaThe relative width of the areas impacted by the erosion.
InfluenceThe influence or depth of the downcutting caused by the erosion.
DowncuttingThe style of the downcutting in the erosion process.
Destructive Tiny, small scale roughening of the entire surface with higher impact on steep slopes.
Pits Larger pit like impacts that overlap often, biased slightly towards existing flow structures.
Flows Deepen existing flow structures and create new minor ones.
Rivers Deepen existing flow structure in major river flow zones only.
